    I worked at Texas Instruments as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Many different kinds of engineering, so it was easy to find people with different interests. Others in my department genuinely wanted to help with what I was working on. Also, I got a sizable software project where I was given design control.

    Cons

    The size of the company was overwhelming as an intern. Didn't typically have a relationship with those outside of my department unless I knew them already.
    The company was really protective of their content, and there were restrictions on the resources I could use for my work.

    Advice to Management

    Better internal communication, more receptive to use of new software for internal use.

    Pros

    Top Class Manufacturing environment. Excellent place to work in a support and manufacturing role

    Cons

    Sound Engineering decisions sometimes trumped by HR and outside forces. Middle management forced to make all things fit one model. But these are the things that make this place an amazing manufacturing machine even if it is at the expense of innovation on a product level ........ in some cases to be fair.

    Advice to Management

    growing an amazing manufacturing environment internally while getting product innovation from acquisitions seems to be working well. Sometimes grown internally but
    that may be out of their control. Just be good to the workers.

    Pros

    upper management is good. They direct the company into businesses it will succeed.

    Cons

    be more considered for the employees. Some decisions are very abrupt and not well thought.

    I worked there for one year. I liked the friendly environment, diverse work force. The location I worked at was in Dallas. I had very good experience with Texas Instrument.
